Running Start

Running Start at Green River College

Running Start is an exciting and nationally recognized option that allows high school juniors and seniors to enroll in college courses tuition-free. Credits earned at Green River are transferable to most four-year colleges and universities, and can satisfy high school graduation requirements. Students may attend classes at Green River full-time or part-time, depending on high school enrollment.

NOTE: Returning Running Start students must submit their EVF prior to registering. The priority processing date is November 1.

All new EVFs for winter quarter are due Thursday, December 19. Forms submitted after this date will be deferred to spring quarter.
